FYBF - Shameless Hussy & Disqus Discontent

Yeah, here I am on a Flog Yo Blog Friday shamelessly hawking for votes. What for, the thousands of new readers, may ask? "Well,' I humbly reply, "for this:

Yes, voting has opened. So follow the link in above post and look at ALL the entries and then vote. Preferably for me. I did mention shameless, didn't I? Well I am. And competitive. Bahahahahahahahahaha...

I also wish to lodge a formal complaint to the many of you whom I follow who have chosen to jump into Disqus. Yes, the commenting system. I HATE IT! It won't let me sign in under my login (yes, I do have a Disqus log in, but it has some personal issue with me and won't let me use it most days). EVERYTIME I want to comment I have to go through the blah, blah, blah... enter e-mail, enter username, enter website crap. And it won't put my lovely picture in either, just leaves me as a mere shadow of my vibrant self. NOT HAPPY JAN!

Why do so many of you like this system? What am I doing wrong? It is like being the geeky one in plaits and glasses hanging around the edge of the huddle, trying desperately to break through to see what the cool kids are giggling, chatting and circling about.

Come on guys - LET ME IN!

Or else I'm sending the shark after you. Hey If I'd do it to my kid, I'd do it to you!

Now, as linky seems to have changed its rules, I don't know if FYBF is on. But this is mine anyway, linky list or no linky list. After all, I'm quite pracised at tanties now. Just sayin'.

I dislike disqus too and I have the same issues.
It takes forever to load too.

I wish blogger had a better reply system to individual comments - can we bomboard them with requests.

ARGH! I just wrote a lengthy and involved comment and accidentally clicked on your Blog This link above before I did that stupid word verification thing...

I won't put in my essay again on why I don't like Disqus but I will say (and it's rather timely now) that the comment boxes I dislike the most are... this one. Where you have to wait for the screen to reload to do the WV thing. See, I told you it was ironic!!

I prefer the little box (I changed my own blog to have the little box) as it has everything your commenter needs right up front.

Either way, no perfect comment box system yet. Disqus ain't it, that's for sure!!! x

I wish we could have threaded comments in Blogger. If I had that, I probably would never consider moving to Wordpress, but one day I will have to get off my butt and make the switch.
